Looking Back on 2018

Looking Back on 2018

It is hard to believe that the end of the year is here and KidsTek has wrapped up the fall semester with our students from all over the Denver Metro area. This year has been full of so many wonderful things from rewarding a couple high school students with KidsTek scholarships to holding KidsTek’s second Bet for Tech Event.

However, the times between KidsTek events, during our daily program schedule, is when KidsTek truly has the deepest impact. Our incredible instructors have continued to create engaging lesson plans and develop special relationships with our students. Without such a unique group of teachers, KidsTek would not be able to fulfill its mission to prepare students for academic, career and personal success.

Here are a few KidsTek projects that stood out this year:

  • Emily Tow, Senior Instructor, had students at Denver’s North High and Florence Crittenton High create business pitches using Microsoft Word. These pitches were then judged in a “Shark Tank” manner and winners were chosen.
  • Quinn Pack, Instructor at North and South Middle schools in Aurora, had each student create a trip itinerary to a destination of their choice, including maps, travel plans and pictures, using Microsoft PowerPoint.
  • Courtney Hermes, a KidsTek Elementary Instructor, had students discover various font options and text formatting features by researching and writing out riddles in Microsoft Word, that students shared with their class.

We would like to thank everyone who has helped to support KidsTek in 2018. All of you make it possible for us to continue to prepare our students for the future of their choice. We look forward with great hopes for 2019!

From all of us at KidsTek, we wish you a Happy New Year!
